Hi Yesterday I accidentally clipped the truss rod of my bass Before you make assumptions, let me clarify that im not a newbie at setting up guitars n basses. Ive been fixing, setting up, upgrading, and tweaking electric n acoustic guitars n basses for over 2 yrs now. I have decent experience with the instruments, but somehow I made this stupid mistake. Guess I got too confident about my craft. I was trying to reduce the up-bow on my RBX375, the weather shift had been causing some problems with the neck. I usually loosen the middle strings while making adjustments, but this time I decided to go without detuning. I tried to tighten the screw a bit, but it wont budge. I applied a lot of force, and it went around quarter of a turn. I checked the neck but there was still a significant up-bow. I put in the hex driver in and tried to give it another quarter turn. I applied a lot of force (shuda known by now its at its threshold), and suddenly SNAP! I thought maybe the hex driver broke. But when I saw it, the tool was fine. The truss rod nut, however, had gone free. I gave it a few spins with my finger, and it screwed out into my hand. The neck is now at full up-bow, the strings are a mile high, and intonation is most probably out through the window. Im guessing one end of the truss rod screwing mechanism has snapped. Now I am in Pakistan, and there is absolutely no one who could fix this for me. In short, I need a replacement neck. But here is the problem. I have done some research, Warmoth, USACG, Allparts, Mighty Mite, even Moses, and the cheapest neck I have found is at Warmoth for $205. Considering I could get the same new bass for abt $350, does anyone have a cheaper solution? COULD there be a cheaper solution? Or should I just skip this bass and get an upgrade altogether? Im lost n confused. Please help me out here. Thanks!
